COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of primes <= n that are quadratic nonresidues modulo 7 minus the number of primes <= n that are quadratic residues modulo 7.
The first 10000 terms (except for a(2)) are nonnegative. a(p) = 0 for primes p = 3, 11, 211, 3371, 3389, ... The earliest negative term (besides a(2)) is a(48673) = 1. Conjecturally infinitely many terms should be negative.
In general, assuming the strong form of RH, if 0 < a, b < k are integers, gcd(a, k) = gcd(b, k) = 1, a is a quadratic residue and b is a quadratic nonresidue mod n, then Pi(k,b)(n) > Pi(k,a)(n) occurs more often than not. Pi(a,b)(x) denotes the number of primes in the arithmetic progression a*k + b less than or equal to x. This phenomenon is called "Chebyshev's bias".

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{primes p<=n} Legendre(p,7) = Sum_{primes p<=n} Kronecker(7,p) = Sum_{primes p<=n} A175629(p).


EXAMPLE

Below 100, there are 10 primes congruent to 1, 2, 4 modulo 7 and 14 primes congruent to 3, 5, 6 modulo 7, so a(100) = 14  10 = 4.


PROG

(PARI) a(n) = sum(i=1, n, isprime(i)*kronecker(7, i))
